Federal officials urge more Metro-North track inspections
BRIDGEPORT - The Metro-North derailment and collision that happened between Bridgeport and Fairfield just a year ago has federal officials urging more track inspections.
The National Transportation Safety Board recently found that Metro-North inspectors may have failed to see a broken part just two days before that train crash that injured dozens of passengers.
The board is now recommending tracks be inspected at least once every two weeks.
